The Children’s Safety Village is a life-safety educational facility built in 2010. The child-size village provides a setting where children can prepare and practice real-life situations. The Children's Safety Village is complete with a city park, buildings, streets, traffic lights, and vehicles.
Our primary focus at the Children’s Safety Village is reducing childhood injuries and deaths. The uniqueness of our facility allows us to accomplish this by incorporating visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning methods. This creates a one-of-a-kind learning experience that is not available anywhere else in the state.
Programs offered include:
Group Tours and Classes (March-October)
Children’s Safety Challenge (Summer Months, Fall and Spring Breaks)
